I have taught several courses on how to release your creativity and generate stories you didn't even know you had inside of you. I am always surprised at the quality and depth of writing that comes from the spontaneous writing that happens during the courses I have taught. They show the true power of the subconscious mind. AND... we have lots of fun!
This will be the first of what I hope will become a series of workshops on how to access your stories and your creativity.
I use a variety of methods from mind mapping to various types of brainstorming and writing prompts. We do timed writing exercises. You come out of the workshop with some pieces of writing, many of which may be diamonds in the rough.
I myself had a humorous essay published which I wrote in a workshop similar to this one.
However, publication is not the goal of this type of workshop. Freeing your creative mind, allowing yourself to write from a deep place (although often the writing can be very light-hearted and funny), and having a good time -- these are the main goals of this workshop.
This workshop is for all levels of writers from people who are complete beginners to seasoned, published professionals. All can benefit.
The workshop will run from 6:30pm - 8:30pm. I am in the process of finding a suitable venue. I have a couple of places in mind already.
The cost will be $16 per person to cover the room rental, handouts, the meetup site maintenance fee, and my teaching time.
If you pay in advance by Paypal on this site, you will get an early-bird sign up fee of only $12 per person.
I am really looking forward to this. I think it will be a lot of fun for everyone!
